Why A Corrugated Bottom for a Hand Plane?

September 11, 20070 Comments

Dan from Idaho dropped me a line just before the start of my little hiatus from the show. He had a great question regarding a feature that’s frequently found on older hand planes. What’s the significance of the corrugated bottoms? I’m sure you’ve seen them too and if you aren’t familiar with their purpose or lack of purpose than hopefully I’ll shed a little light on the situation with today’s episode.

As usual, there’s plenty of tangents for everyone to enjoy (or not). “Thank You” to all of you who have taken the survey so far, if you haven’t yet…please…please take just a moment out and answer the couple of questions you’ll find there. Also don’t forget to get your name in for the free schwag being given away on Feature Friday this week and every week.
